Reading is a central part of our daily lives. Simply put - it is non-verbal communication used to share messages and information with others. Through print we are entertained, seek and provide information, gain knowledge, share experiences, and express emotions. Phonics is the ability to match letters with sounds to read words. Fortunately, there are fun activities that you can do with your child to promote phonics!

Transcript of "Teach Kids Phonics"

  2. 2. Print is Everywhere Reading is a central part of our daily lives. Simply put - it is non- verbal communication used to share messages and information with others. Through print we are entertained, seek and provide information, gain knowledge, share experiences, and express emotions. Print is found everywhere: books, signs, recipes, menus, labels, advertisements, directions, contracts, internet, emails, texts, and more. Toddlers and young children first communicate verbally by speaking. They learn to imitate sounds heard to form words to express their needs. Verbal communication is the basis for phonics - the ability to match letters with sounds to read words. Fortunately, there are fun activities that you can do with your child to promote phonics!
  3. 3. Understanding Phonics As children become readers, they need to understand and use the relationship between letters and sounds to read words. Letters are the symbols used in print to represent the sounds. Phonics requires knowledge of letter recognition, sound recognition and their associations. This means that children must recognize letters in words, and then produce their corresponding sounds to read words. – For example in the sign above: • the word read has four letters represented by three sounds: /r/, /ea/, /d/ • the word to has two letters represented by two sounds /t/, & /o/ • the word reading has seven letters represented by five sounds /r/, /ea/, /d/, /in/, /g/
  4. 4. Shuffle the cards in random order and have your child say the name of each letter. Next, have your child produce the sound of each letter. As your child becomes more skilled as a reader, he/she will need to read words with letter patterns - two letters combined to represent one sound. Using flash cards have him/her practice letter patterns such as vowel pairs: /ea/, /ee/, /oa/, /ai/, and digraphs: /sh/, /ch/, /th/, and /wh/. Letter Recognition and Sound Recognition Using a Set of Alphabet Cards
  5. 5. Letter Sound Match Select picture cards that begin with the 3 initial consonant sounds that are very different such as: /b/, /s/, & /t/. Review the cards before you have your child sort them: bear, triangle, smile, spoon, sunflower, spinner, sign, train, tree If your child needs support ask, “What is the first sound you hear in the word bear? What letter makes the /b/ sound? Is it the letter b, s, or t? – Then have your child sort the pictures according to their ending sounds. – Activities of increasing difficulty include sorting pictures according to their medial sound represented by their vowel pattern: /e/: seal, peas, read, team, wheel; /o/: boat, coat, toad, road OR according to their beginning digraphs: cards: chair, cherries, shoe, sheep, thread, three, wheat, whiskers.
  6. 6. Building Words Create a set of boxes. Each box represents a sound in the word. Place different magnetic letters below the set of boxes. Black letters represent consonants, and red letters represent vowels. – Dictate a cvc word - three letter word that consists of two consonants and a vowel. The vowel appears in the middle of the consonants and makes the short vowel sound. CVC words consist of the same number of sounds and letters. Examples include: cat, hat, sat, bat, pet, set, bet, tap, cap, cab – Next, have your child say the word slowly pronouncing each sound heard: /c/, /a/, /t/. – Ask your child to choose the correct letter for each sound heard. Have him/her begin building the word by placing the first letter in the first box moving from left to right. This will help to reinforce that the letters need to be placed in the correct order to build (make) the dictated word.
  7. 7. Extend the activity by dictating words that include vowel pairs and/or digraphs. Words consisting of vowels pairs and digraphs (two letters combined to represent one sound) will always have a greater number of letters compared to sounds. Understanding Letter Patterns
  8. 8. Sounds said in the correct order produce desired words, therefore the positioning of letters is essential in building the corrects words. Switching letters/sounds will change a word. Begin by displaying the magnetic letters that are needed to build the dictated words. Next, draw three or four boxes depending on the number of sounds heard. Switch Letters to Change the Word Dictate the word cat and have your child listen to the sounds and place their corresponding letters in the correct order from left to right.. Next, ask your child to switch the letter c with the letter that makes /h/ to build the word hat. Continue by having your child replace the h with the letters that make the /ch/ sound. Ask your child to read the new word - chat. Have your child change the word chat to chap. Activities of increasing difficulty would include longer words with more patterns.
  9. 9. . Continue on the road to reading success To reinforce these skills, select books for your child that highlight the phonics patterns practiced in these activities. This will help your child to strategically apply the skills learned to reading words in books.
